Description - Mrs Perfect by Jane Porter

As a young girl in a blue collar neighbourhood of Pasadena, Taylor Young watched the selection of the Rose Bowl queen every year with fascination and envy. When she grew up, Taylor decided that she'd be beautiful and popular and have stylish clothes too. She would marry a handsome, successful man and live happily ever after. At 36, Taylor is at the pinnacle of her dreams. She has a successful software billionaire husband, three beautiful girls and a life of luxury in an exclusive enclave in Bellevue. But her picture-perfect life is about to unravel...As the new school year draws near, Taylor prepares herself for another term of playing the perfect alpha mom, organizing class activities and fundraising, including chairing the school auction. To her horror, Taylor's archrival, bohemian mom Marta Zinsser, is named Head Room Mom for her daughter Jemma's Fifth Grade Class. From that moment forward, this alpha mom will do everything she can to overrule Marta's influence at committee meetings and school activities. Tensions rise and the two rivals seem destined for a final confrontation.

Book Reviews - Mrs Perfect by Jane Porter

US Kirkus Review » When the exclusive life of blonde and beautiful Taylor Young starts to fall apart, her real character, forged by a tough childhood, comes out.Taylor, her husband Nathan and their three perfect daughters occupy an upper-crust world. Among the perks for Taylor: lavish fashions (including $200 bras), sunny vacations and a Finnish nanny. But the pressure to stay on top in exclusive Bellevue, Wash., is almost too much. Between Taylor's exercise classes, manicures, pedicures and a volunteer schedule that rivals a full-time job, she barely has a moment to relax poolside with a gin and tonic, not to mention keep up with her competitive book group. So when Nathan starts acting odd, disappearing for days on a business trip, she begins to worry. Could her perfect marriage, which rescued her from a working-class background, be going the way of her friend Lucy's, broken up by an affair? The truth, when it comes out, is worse. Her billionaire husband has been fired, and he has been hiding the fact, letting compulsive-shopper Taylor ring up bills they can no longer afford. When Nathan attempts to move the family to Omaha, where he has found a job, Taylor refuses to go, trying to keep her place in a world she can no longer afford. Ultimately, she must choose between her family and her luxuries. The witty first-person narration keeps things lively in Potter's latest (Odd Mom Out, 2007, etc.). Taylor's neurotic fussiness provides both vicarious thrills and laughs before Taylor moves on to self awareness and a new kind of empowerment.The glittery high-end fantasy is delivered with enough humor to leaven the silliness, making this a feel-good read. (Kirkus Reviews)
